OPENING DAY AT OAKLAWN
1 p.m. Oaklawn. $2.50-$4.50.


Seems like you can do just about dang-near anything on a smartphone these days, I tell you what. Now you can even bet on the horsies at Oaklawn over your Samsung Galaxy or iPhone 5 or whatever. The track just launched OaklawnAnywhere.com, which, according to a press release, means that "race fans can set up an account to use while at the track or 'Anywhere' they wish."

And it's not just for smartphones — you can use your tablet, laptop or old-timey desktop computer as well. That's mighty convenient for sure, especially if you live a ways from the Spa City. But they don't yet have a website that'll serve you up a corned beef sandwich and an ice-cold Miller Lite, now do they?

And then there's the overall vibe of Oaklawn and the races, which just cannot be replicated by any means other than going there and maybe making a little extra spending money. Or losing some. But hey, you don't have to bet. You can just watch the horses and also the people. Oaklawn has some of the finest people-watching anywhere. Oh, and those sandwiches? They're only $0.50 on Saturday.
